Why You Should Attend the AWS Summit New York 2018

We’re less than one week away from this year’s AWS Summit in New York on July 17! And in case you are undecided about whether to attend, I’d like to highlight some of the events we’re most excited about.


There will be over 125 learning sessions held during the Summit to share cloud best practices and customer success stories. These sessions will provide the opportunity to learn directly from users and designers of the AWS platform how to successfully drive cloud adoption in the enterprise. Although we’d like to hear them all, three sessions in particular caught our attention:

The AWS Cloud Value Framework

The business case for cloud computing goes beyond total cost of ownership (TCO). AWS helps organizations reduce time to market and time spent on undifferentiated work and improve application availability. In this chalk talk, you learn about the AWS Cloud Value Framework. This framework quantifies not only TCO savings, but also the business value of agility, risk reduction, and efficiency, which you can use in building a case for change.

Monitoring Modern Applications: Best Practices

Companies are embracing new architecture paradigms to deliver global scale and critical functionality. These companies must have monitoring and debugging as part of their overall IT development and operations strategy to achieve faster resolution of issues and minimize customer impact. In this session, we explore native AWS services for monitoring, logging, tracing and debugging.

Build and Deploy Serverless Applications with AWS SAM

AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) is a tool for developing, deploying and managing your serverless applications on AWS. Learn best practices and tricks for using AWS SAM at scale, including how to make the most of its dynamic template capabilities, how to use advanced features, and how to debug serverless applications.

Aside from the above, there are a number of other topics of interest, including: Cloud Security, Developing a Business Case for the Cloud, Identity & Compliance, Big Data & AI and much more!

Keynote Speakers

One of the highlights of the Summit will be the keynote address given by Dr. Werner Vogels, CTO, and Dr. Matt Wood, GM, Artificial Intelligence, Amazon Web Services. Past keynotes covered the latest trends in cloud computing and newly released AWS products and solutions. We’re looking forward to hearing from Dr. Vogels and Dr. Wood on the the new and exciting developments in this area, and what to watch out for in the second half of 2018 and beyond.

Contino Booth

Last but not least, be sure to stop by booth 345 in the Summit Expo. This year, for the first time, Hashicorp will be joining Contino! Our team of experts will be there to share the stories behind a number of recent high-impact customer engagements, and answer any questions you might have.
